Worth A Download.....
.....if you love the Excitable Boy album, which was part of the soundtrack of my life the summer I graduated from high school (1978). This show is a great companion to the album. Sure, Warren is a bit bombed and flubs some lyrics here and there, but this is a warts and all kinda place. Sound quality is solid and the band is SMOKIN', don't think twice about grabbing this one, it's a keeper.

Amazing short and sweet show. These guys are so on. I can't believe it wasn't released as a disc by their record company.

This is an excellent recording of an excellent show. The band was great, Warren was great, and the quality of this recording is fantastic. Well worth downloading and keeping.

This is the stuff! Warren was our college soundtrack '76-'80 (came to our school even in '79). I used to play Lawyers Guns & Money right before every exam just to get me psyched up. This show sounds great--Warren at his rip-roaring best, with his super tight blow-you-to-pieces band backing him every step of the way. They sure were having a ball. God I miss him!

Better Than The Roxy
If Zevon at his apex for you was the "Excitable Boy" then this is the show. The sound is richer and fuller than the Roxy Show and the band is cooking. I had this on real to real before I lost my tape player somewhere during a 70's college move. The FM source shows from the Record Plant in Sausalito in the late 70's were the stuff of legend and this Zevon has a rightful place amongst them. I am pretty sure that I recorded this from a Sunday night KSAN (the jive 95 in SF may it RIP).
This is Warren the LA Outlaw, buzzed to the gills, at his wisecracking, song writing best. The band of Wachtel, Sheldon and Marotta (plus one other??anyone know?), thumps when need be (awesome "Lawyers") and plays tastefully,soft and sweet as well (listen to "Tenderness on the block"). The live album that Warren cut in the early 80's and the "Ronin" project that Wachtel produced about the same time was just a copy of this band without substance. So don't hesitate, download this bad boy, you won't be dissapointed.
This is the Warren I will remember, perfect hair and tongue frimly planted in cheek.
